Having problems with your Compaq Presario Notebook ?

P200-RT3 Toshiba Note Book - Windows Vista

\015 Hello,\015\012\015\012I had been using the laptop last evening and it was working fine. I think I may have disabled the touchpad.....? It will move around and point but does not open anything up when I prompt it too, so then I wasn't able to close the system down properly either. Is there a keyboard function I may have keyed in that would have done this? The manual is of course 'on the sytem' & I can't get at it to troubleshoot. \015\012\015\012Thank you very much for your time.\015\012Carla\015

Answers :

Yes, there is a way to shut down without touchpad. Look to see if you have a key on bottom left corner of keypad that looks like a little MS Windows icon (kinda like a 4-piece "crooked flag"). If you do, you are in luck. Press that key ONCE and let go and the start menu will "expand" and show you programs, settings and SHUT DOWN. Now just hit the UP arrow key (on bottom right side of keyboard) and the menu moves up one notch, to SHUT DOWN. No press ENTER and the shut down menu appears Move the arrow key again, until it says "SHUT DOWN and press ENTER again. That is it.

If you have no windows key (many laptops don't) then try pressing ALT and F keys. Sometimes this works. If it does raise the menu, then 5the instructions are the same thereafter (arrows and enter).

Another way to shut down is press CTR ALT and DEL (DELETE) together, all three keys simultaneously (but only ONE time). Then wait a second. This brings up a process window that has tabs for shut down (arrows and enter will work there too).

Now, when you restart, look for an icon in bottom right hand corner for "synaptics touch pad". or some other brand touch pad. There you can change your touchpad settings back to "tapping" for mouse clicking. You can also allow "click and drag" but I think that is dangerous, since you can accidentally "bury" files and folders.

Hit the solved/Fix Ya key on the way out. :)
